Red Wing, MN, April 8, 2024 – Riedell Skates, a leading innovator in ice skate technology, proudly unveils Selene, its latest addition to the Eclipse Blades line. 

In conjunction with the solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, the newest addition to the Eclipse Blade line up is being announced to the ice industry. As the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene is a fitting name for a blade designed to command the ice. Each Selene blade is adorned with an arching moon phase icon at the toe pick.

Designed with precision and performance in mind, Selene is set to provide figure skating athletes with unparalleled stability and glide as they aim for new heights. Key features of Selene include:

  • Lightweight Aluminum Holder: Boasting a state-of-the-art lightweight 6005 T/5 hardened aircraft-grade aluminum holder, Selene is meticulously crafted to provide skaters with optimal control and responsiveness.
  • Stainless Steel Runner: The Selene blade features a high-quality 440C stainless steel runner, with an eight foot rocker profile, and cross cut toe picks. The blade has been engineered for both durability and resilience on the ice. 
  • Jump Excellence: Selene is specifically tailored for skaters working on double jumps. The combination of the lightweight aluminum holder and stainless steel runner enhances the longevity of the blade by maintaining sharp edges and ensuring consistent performance for skaters who demand the best from their equipment.
  • Cutting-Edge Design: The Selene blade’s sleek and modern design reflects the innovation and precision that Riedell Skates and Eclipse Blades are renowned for in the world of figure skating. 

Bob Riegelman, President of Riedell Skates, shared “Crafted with care and attention to detail, the Eclipse Selene is a technical piece of equipment designed to honor both the strength and artistry of the sport of figure skating.” 

Eclipse Selene blades will be available for purchase in early summer at or at authorized Riedell dealers worldwide.
